Horizon Wins Health Magazine's "America's Healthiest Fitness Award"


COTTAGE GROVE, Wis. (June 12, 2008) – Horizon Fitness took home top honors in Health magazine's 2008 America's Healthiest Fitness Awards competition. The fitness equipment manufacturer's T1200 treadmill won the America's Healthiest Fitness Award in the equipment/treadmill category. This is the third consecutive year Horizon Fitness has been recognized by the magazine.

“This recognition clearly demonstrates Horizon's continued dedication to delivering the best fitness products to our retail partners and their customers,” said Mike Olson, vice president of marketing for Horizon Fitness. “We're proud to offer durable treadmills that continue to feature technology that enables consumers to achieve personal fitness success.”

America's Healthiest Fitness Awards recognizes Health magazine's top fitness picks – selected by the publication's experts and leaders in the fitness industry. For this year's competition, a panel of experts and industry leaders selected the top products in important lifestyle areas such as food, fitness and beauty.

T1200 Treadmill
Some of the features unique to the T1200 treadmill – which is sold exclusively at Dick's Sporting Goods nationwide – include iPod® integration that allows users to connect their iPod directly to the treadmill. Once connected, users can control playlists through the console while the iPod automatically charges. Users can plug headphones directly into the treadmill, or listen to music through large built-in speakers.

You're less likely to get bored with your workouts when you incorporate music,” said Olson. “That means you have a better chance of sticking with a fitness routine over the long-haul. Plus, it makes workouts more enjoyable and fun.”

iPod integration is just one of the many added-value performance features found on the T1200 treadmill. The treadmill features a powerful 2.75 HP continuous-duty motor that is extremely smooth and quiet, which keeps noise levels at a minimum while working out.

The treadmill also comes with eTRAKâ„¢ Performance Tracking Technology, which allows users to monitor a variety of workout statistics over the lifetime of the product. eTRAK captures a variety of important workout statistics, including: incline, time, calories, pace, distance and speed. The accumulated data can be viewed in a variety of formats, including: current workout, last workout, average workout, weekly total, weekly goal and lifetime total.

The T1200 treadmill also features integrated heart rate monitoring in the hand grips. It comes with a lifetime warranty on the motor, three-year warranty on parts and one-year warranty on labor. Its user capacity rating is 375 pounds.
